CoolSculpting was relatively painless for me. I didn't even take the pain medicine they prescribed for me. The only part that hurt was the five minutes after the machine was removed. However, Alexa, who is the CoolSculpt technician and expert at Dr. Nazarian's office, helped me through those five minutes and before I knew it, the pain was over. It's totally worth even the results I have so far. However, it takes two months to see the results completely. I already feel thinner and my belly fat is less pronounced. My pants are definitely looser and I cannot wait to see what a bikini will look like.
Alexa and Dr. Nazarian gave me post procedure instructions as well as told me to wear Spanx. This was an incredibly smart idea. My advice to anyone who gets CoolSculpt is to buy an extra pair or two of seamless Spanx before they have the procedure done.
